Historical Perspective on Instrumentation and study of living cells Invention of Nano Tools Birth of NanoCellBiology New understandings of live cells at a molecular level Future developments of tools and technologies for the study of living cells


Understanding live cells at the single molecule level is the most important and single major challenge facing biology and medicine today. Nanobiology focuses on the properties and structure of complex assemblies of biomolecules—biochips and molecular motors, for example—in conjunction with distinctive surfaces, rods, dots, and materials of nanoscience. Nano Cell Biology will describe the current applications of nanobiology to the study of the structure, function, and metabolic processes of cells.
